Wire fraud is simply any type of fraud that takes place over the phone,
internet, computer or other interstate communications device and intends
to take another’s property or money. If you are facing charges of
wire fraud, you may be looking at steep penalties and loss of reputation.

crimes and could result in invasive financial and personal investigations.

Wire Fraud Elements & Penalties
Prosecutors must prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that a person faced with
wire fraud charges actually had the intent to steal something of value
from another through the use of a false promise, lies, misrepresentation
or the like, specifically through the use of an interstate communications
device. Even if the defendant did not receive any money from the scam
and the victim didn’t experience any loss of valuables, the defendant
can still be held accountable for scheming to defraud another.
When simplified, wire fraud can be defined by these components:
- An individual’s creation or participation of or in a plan to defraud another
- An individual’s intention to defraud that person
- An individual’s reasonably assumed use of interstate wire communications
- An individual’s actual use of wire communication to defraud
Each act of wire fraud is counted separately, so someone who attempted
to defraud others through seven separate phone calls could be charged
with seven separate acts of wire fraud. Under federal law, one instance
of wire fraud could be penalized by large fines and up to 20 years of
time in prison. If wire fraud is enacted on a larger scale and impacts
a financial institution, the penalties leap to potential fines of $1,000,000
and up to 30 years of time in prison.
